Cons
The product is pretty comprehensive, but quite resource hungry. This might be due to the majority of the application seemingly being written in Java.Better mobile access would be useful.Patching. It's extremely difficult to determine what requires patching and the process to patch each component is slightly different.RMAN tools need improvement.Reporting and statistical charting is largely still left up the end-user to develop custom solutions.They should improve the hover text context. This would provide assistance whenever a task is attempted by a DBA.

The operations could be faster and you need some patience with this tool.The cost of the product can be improved.This solution needs to be supported on all Operating systems.Not everything is readily available, and there are a lot of commands that are only executable via PowerShell.This solution should be simpler, and more consistent across modules/sections.I would like to see an agentless version of the solution.The setup was complex and I faced a lot of problems initially because I was new to the solution.Our company would prefer not rebooting computers while people are using them. There seems to be no strategy behind it.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Evaluate your requirements carefully. Elaborate DR and HA setup of OEM can become expensive.Be careful to only enable the packs for which you have a license as this is an issue we see time and again.There are a few bugs with the software which require opening SRs with Oracle Support which contribute to the day-to-day cost. Perhaps 8 hours per month is spent dealing with support, just as a rough guess.The pricing is very high.Based upon 3 days of implementation by a single person, plus licensing costs would be approximately $60,000, including the virtualized hosts.The basic functions are free. You only pay license fees for advanced features.

The licensing is good because they have various options, depending on what you are looking for.SCCM comes with its own version of SQL Server. If you use that SQL Server with SCCM and don't use it for another applications than you get an SQL Server for free.Overall, I think it's fine. It's pretty much in-line because there are ways to offset it with the Office 365 licensing.Pricing and licensing are a downside of SCCM. It's expensive. I'd have to confirm this, but I think they changed the licensing to core-based instead of socket-based. It's not cheap, because you have to buy the software, you have to buy SQL. Another thing we learned from talking to Microsoft is that they provide you a license for SQL if you run it on the same box as the primary server. If you run it outside that box, you have to buy SQL. Microsoft does recommend you running it on the same box because of performance. But then, in order to run SQL, SCCM, and everything on the same box, you better have some resources. It's an expensive solution. There's no doubt about it.Pricing and licensing are horrible. You have to not look at dollar value to use SCCM. It's super-duper expensive but it works. The acquisition cost is expensive, it's labor-intensive. But it works.

Overview

As an IT operations professional, your job is more critical than ever because cloud operations are now a fact of life. For example, you must address the concerns of corporate compliance auditors one minute, and the next minute, deal with end users who signed up for cloud services without consulting you first. So, what are you to do?

Not to worry! Oracle provides a single solution for managing both situations. Oracle Enterprise Manager provides a “single pane of glass” that allows you to manage on-premises and cloud-based IT using the same familiar interface you know and use on-premises every day.
